General Information Document Type: BROAD AREA ANNOUNCEMENT (BAA) Classification Code: A -- Research & Development Description AJ61 - Broad Agency Announcement for Air-Droppable, Scatterable Electronic Media PROGRAM OBJECTIVES AND DESCRIPTION: This notice constitutes a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) as contemplated in FAR 6.102(d)(2). The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is soliciting proposals for emerging technologies for air droppable, scatterable electronic media. This media will be used to disseminate information and could take the form of long range broadcast electronic media receivers (tools, instruments, implements) for AM/FM/UHF/satellite broadcast operations, satellite radios; miniaturized AM/FM broadcast transmitters; miniaturized loudspeakers; entertainment devices; game device technologies, greeting cards; telephony technologies; text messaging; or other media capable of receiving and/or transmitting Internet broadcast or commercial radio frequency signals. The objective of this BAA is to provide USSOCOM a capability to disseminate information. It is not the intent of this solicitation to establish new devices or facilities, rather, to identify institutions that have demonstrated integration and development capabilities and have the necessary facilities to meet the objectives described in this BAA. It is desired that such electronic media be: 1) deployable (ruggedized, robust in construction or packaging) from air-platforms, air-droppable, 2) self-powered (long-life battery, solar, friction dynamo, other), 3) lightweight, 4) trackable, 5) disguisable. The following general aspects of scatterable media are of interest: 1) Miniaturization of media/transmitter/antennae/power source, 2) Ruggedized and hardened hardware, both in construction and packaging, able to withstand a variety of environmental conditions and temperatures, 3) Internet broadcast reception and transmission devices, 4) Other media applications such as Internet broadcast receivers and grouped telephones. This BAA shall remain open for one (1) year from the date of publication on www.fedbizopps.gov. Although the Government may select proposals for award at any time during this period, it is anticipated that the majority of funding for this program will be committed during the initial selection. All are invited to submit a project proposal not exceeding 100 pages of text that describes the following: 1) The development and integration objective, 2) The development approach, 3) Related work by the investigator or proposer, 4) Anticipated contributions to USSOCOM programs, 5) An estimate of overall costs (including indirect) for up to a three year effort, 6) Proposed payment milestones and program schedule, and 7) A curriculum vitae of the principal investigator(s) appended with any supporting information, such as reprints, that will assist in the evaluation of the pre-proposal submission. Additionally, all offers must identify any rights and restrictions that exist on their technical data, and all offerors are advised that restrictions on technology transfers outside of the U.S. will be imposed on all media created IAW this BAA. In order to be considered during the initial round of funding, full proposals must be submitted to USSOCOM SOAL-KBA 7701 Tampa Point Blvd, MacDill AFB, FL 33621 (Attn.: H92222-04-R-0032) on or before 12:00 NOON, on 25 June 2004. All responsible sources capable of satisfying the Government's needs may submit a proposal that shall be considered by USSOCOM. Small businesses are encouraged to submit proposals and join others in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this BAA will be set aside for small business due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable areas of this research for exclusive competition among these entities. The government reserves the right to negotiate the type of award instrument determined appropriate under the circumstances. EVALUATION CRITERIA: 1) Practical application and operational technical merits of the proposed media development, 2) Demonstration of current emerging development model device, 3) Qualifications and experience of the principal investigator(s), and availability of facilities to support and conduct the media development and integration, 4) Relevance of the proposed media application to USSOCOM program priorities, 5) Realism of the proposed costs. Each proposal will be evaluated on the merit and relevance of the specific proposal as it relates to the program rather than against other proposals for research in the same general area, since no common work statement exists. The Government may award single or multiple contracts in accordance with technical priority and funding availability. The government reserves the right to select for award all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this BAA. The Government reserves the right to select for award, all, some, or none of the parts of a proposal from proposal respondents. Proposals may be selected and/or award decisions made without discussions or negotiations. ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE: There will be no other requests for proposals or other formal solicitations regarding this announcement. Solicitations will be provided upon request.
